Recommended by Autism and ADHD experts, the Time Timer displays the passage of time with a disappearing colored disk. This is a powerful tool for visual thinkers and differently wired brains.

“I think the best part for me when utilizing (the Time Timer) with kids with all different special needs is the visual component…it is hard for younger kids to understand something abstract like time, so having a dial slowly fade out is helpful to understand time.”
– Jen O’Brien, Occupational Therapist
